Our room was spacious and had lovely views of the River and Kilkenny Castle. Location was great as its in the heart of the city so we... More

Stayed here on a 'golden years' break in mid July with another couple. This was our first visit to Kilkenny and the Hotel was completely unknown to us. But it was great value - especially as the conversion rate from GB pounds to Euros is very good at present. Getting in and out of the hotel through two separate and... More

Yesterday, 22nd July 2014 I was having a nice time in Kilkenny, Ireland until I visited the outside bar/dinning area of the hotel overlooking the river and Kilkenny Castle - truly a lovely spot. On entering the covered outside patio there is a sign stating "Table Service in Operation" - so I sit down and wait to be served. After... More

I recently travelled to the River Court Hotel to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday with 10 of my siblings. This was a rare family get together with some members travelling from overseas. We had heard great reviews of the hotel and were looking forward to enjoying top class service during our 2 day stay. On arrival we were too early... More

The location is second to none. The rooms are quite cute but showing their age. There were lots of chipped tiles and signs of age in our room. The size was good. The hotel restaurant was great. Breakfast was great. We had a great visit with family in the pub. The rooms were way too hot though. They really need... More

The staff, and I wish I had their names, were just great. Very helpful and extremely friendly. Great location. If you're driving, you might just drive right past as there is no sign except when you're actually in front of it as it is on the wall over the entrance to the car park, so just know it's on the...
